I am integrating with Microsoft Teams to create a team via API. Is it possible to create a team via an APi call without the groupID. The docs state that it requires the group id, however it does mention groups can be created from templates without the group id.

 

Is it possible to create a group via the API without a group id?

 

Thanks in advance.

@RBryan89 ,
Group id required for creating a team.

 

Where is this mentioned? Can you please share the link to it.


however it does mention groups can be created from templates without the group id.

 

 

@subhasish-MSFT See docs below - In the example provided the "PUT" request consists of the ID

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/team-put-teams?view=graph-rest-1.0&tabs=http

 

I have seen other examples elsewhere in the docs which specify leveraging teams template.

 

Can you confirm this for me please

@RBryan89, Yes, Group ID is mandatory for creating teams.
